Etsy member Shankalonian has constructed some pretty beautiful versions of famous spacecraft, out of old salvaged computer parts. Like this version of the U.S.S. Kelvin from Star Trek, made out out of "an ancient hard drive motor, hard drive reader arms, mother board capacitors, [and] a Toyota Corolla spark plug."
